Rollover Protection Systems (ROPS)

Vehicle rollover is a major cause of death and injury in mining areas. Delta-V Experts designs Rollover Protection Systems to cutting edge safety standards, and back them up with stringent design, computer modelling and physical testing regimes.

Our award winning Rollover Protective Structure designs are used by major mining and resource companies worldwide, such as BHP Billiton and Anglo American, with representation on four continents.

DVE has developed Rollover Protective Structural System solutions for light vehicles, utilities, trucks, buses and people movers. The Rollover Protective Structural Systems can be retrofitted to current fleets or specified as part of a new vehicle fit out. We can also tailor our designs to suit any specific site requirements, and can integrate the ROPS to cater for existing infrastructure and tools.

Our systems and methodology have received recognition via the Bronze Award at the SAE-A Automotive Engineering Excellence Awards 2008.
